HOW YOU GOT STARTED IN MOTORSPORT
I got into racing through my grandfather taking me to Vereeniging kart circuit and watching the racing. He was a scrutineer. Eventually I got to do some laps around the track after a race meeting.

FAVOURITE RACING CIRCUIT & WHY
Would have to be Aldo Scribante in Port Elizabeth because it is fast and scary and the crowd is so enthusiastic about the racing.

EARLIEST RACING/CAR MEMORIES
Started in Polo Cup in 2008 and won Rookie of the Year.

SCARIEST RACING INCIDENT
Had a few but must be at Kyalami, end of last year (2017) into the last corner when I hit the wall.

MOST NOTABLE RACING VICTORIES
Was in 2014 winning the INEX LEGENDS WORLD FINAL in West Virginia

RACING DRIVER YOU MOST LOOKED UP TO
Johan Fourie

IF YOU HAD A CHOICE TO RACE IN ANY CATEGORY, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
Locally would be Sasol GTC. Overseas would be Supercars Championship in Australia.
